Consider this a real woodworking project. All the joinery is cut and the parts are shaped but the rest is up to you. You will feel a real sense of ownership over these chairs when they’re done.
That will depend greatly on skill level and shop set up. If you have a moderate hobby style shop and are planning on using a multicoat, hand applied finish (as I do in the instructions), expect to be around 2 hours per chair.If you’re in more of a production shop, having some way to power sand curves and are planning on spray finishing, expect to be closer to an hour.
